Let's just say, hypothetically, that HBO was going to film a new TV series about sexy young waitresses struggling to find love, respect and decent tips in a Midwestern suburb. The show would need characters who were attractive, smart, funny and lovable. That would be the staff at Raoul's Velvet Room, who look like models but take their serving skills seriously. Diners who come for chef John Breitenstein's excellent creations always feel they're getting the attention they deserve. Raoul's food is sexy, its décor is moody and dark, and the music is romantic. The pretty waitresses pull all the facets together, giving the place a sophistication belying the reality that it's across the parking lot from a Dairy Queen.
